I saw it for the first time last year when I picked upnthe Blu.

It holds up well. And that may be the best fight scene ever.

That is commonly regarded as such. I just about lost my shiat when they recreated that scene in Saint's Row 4.  OMG, that game was awesome if only for having Rowdy Roddy Piper in it.

That game is a crazy, sloppy mess, but goddamn, it had some brilliant bits to it. I can't decide if, given 6 more months, $10 million, and a dozen more developers, Deep Silver would have turned it into the best video game to ever have existed or whether it would have been death-by-committee'd down to a bunch of vanilla mush. I guess crazy sloppy mess is a decent middle ground.

I guess I should get around to seeing this at some point. I love Carpenter, and from what I've seen of the story, I would probably love it. For some reason, it was never on my radar.

I counter your post with my exclamation that I realize it's now de rigeur to hate xkcd but I often chuckle when I see xkcd comics posted. Furthermore, some of them over the years have just been flat out wonderful.

I'm not sure i agree.  The schlockieness is part of the charm in a John Carpenter film.  But to your point, Carpenter was frequently referred to as the "poor man's Spielberg" during his heyday.

CSB...

We're checking in to Days Of The Dead horrorcon in Indianapolis in 2015, and one of the elevators is broken and there is this massive line, so we just chill for a few minutes after signing in... and I hear from behind me.. "Hey I found the stairs, it's just 5 floors.. to hell with waiting" .. I agree and grab my bags and turn around and there is Piper, like.. "Well, lets go!" .. So we carry all this shiat up 5 floors and Piper's just being kinda quiet looking at all the people in the hallways (It was packed, and with the snowstorm outside no one is leaving the hotel.. and there is nothing to do on check in night but fark around and drink) and he's like.. "So, they do this .. a lot" ?

We end up talking to him and he is absolutely thrilled and almost in disbelief that all these young people came out in this massive snow storm to come together and network and show independent films and meet some industry icons. (sharing an elevator later with Piper and Traci Lords and George Romero had me writing a movie in my head within 20 seconds of getting off that elevator)

So we just kinda chill and turn in early. Saturday the place is a madhouse with people who could not get in on Friday because of the storm. There is not much for convention staffing, the food lines are insane because no one can really leave and every goes from annoyed to "fark it.. lets just have fun" by 3PM. 

We helped line wrangle for Piper... who is literally agog with the line of people waiting to meet him. He was obviously new to the con scene, but my gods the man was just *stunned* by all the fans that were there to see him, and talk about movies.. not (reallly) wrestling. He just kept smiling and laughing and telling anecdotes and kept talking to us on the side like "Really.. people are waiting in line to see "me?". 

We told him to poke his head around the corner.. There must have been 60 people in line for his table. At this point he is just in disbelief. "I ... never even knew people outside of wrestling knew or cared who I was, and these people are waiting an hour to shake my hand and take a picture? This is ... awesome!" 

He's passing out bubble gum to everyone (double bubble nuggets... He said he carries a few with him.. bullshiat.. he had 4 tubs!  At least someone told him to bring lots of gum. 

He takes only 10 minutes of his 90 minute lunch to eat ..and works the line while eating... One guy had a Hell Comes to Frogtown shirt on and Piper is like.. "That ... is the coolest thing I have ever seen." After the picture with that guy.. dude asks Piper to sign his shirt.. Roddy says.. Nope.. I want it. I'll sign MY shirt and give it to you if I can have yours!. And he did it!


I'm no shrink but you could tell that Piper had been down for a while.. and finding this new group of fans who were telling him how much of an impact that he had had on their lives was some next level "It's A Wonderful Life" shiat for him. He just beamed all day..and that night he was in the best mood I have ever seen a completely exhausted man be in.

We shared a few shots of rum with him and talked movies most of the evening and he really made our weekend. It was weird that we had become his defacto ambassadors to this new world..and he kept asking us how things worked and how many events like this were happening around the country. It was really beautiful to be honest with you.

I talked to him about how my grandparents had been huge wrestling fans and that I had been brought up watching him in the 80's and how much I enjoyed not only his time in the ring, but how much he threw himself into playing a great heel...and how much I loved They Live, and how I thought it was ripe for a remake, but only if it were done by  Carpenter himself, and Roddy agreed.

He said he really wanted to get back into movies, and B movies were awesome, and how excited he was to find out that not only did people remember him, but that they considering him and a movie that he was in to be such an important thing to them and their lives.

Which, of course, made his passing so much more tragic to me. He was just finding a new place in the world, and was "coming out of some darkness" and then he was gone.. But I am very glad he had such cool experiences that weekend.

Damn, that's awesome. I do enjoy so many things about Indianapolis and its geek scene, it makes me sad sometimes that I had to leave it.

I'm glad that they could bring some joy to his life at the end. The pro wrestling world must be pretty tunnel visioned if he had never been to a con before. I don't know anyone who wasn't a big fan of him in They Live regardless of how they felt about wrestling. Mostly I knew of him from the cartoon, I think it was Hulk Hogan's WrestleMania from before WrestleMania was an actual event.

They Live wasn't anything life impacting, he was just very entertaining in a John Carpenter movie. But that is not nothing, either. If he loved the con scene it would have been there for him all this time had he known about it and he might have been able to be involved in more movies if he wanted to.

I'm really glad he enjoyed it. It's a special moment when there's mutual enthusiasm like that, it makes it a day for everyone to remember. For too many it's a job. They are there to meet with admirers and they expect certain treatment.

I'm wondering if Praise_Cheesus will pop in and say something about Piper. She has insights into all those guys it seems.

I think it was more the fact that Days Of Dead is such a small event, and is geared more towards independent small film makers and networking than your typical fan con. I mean, any con where you can walk in off the street and still get a room for the weekend in the hotel that is hosting the event is pretty damned small. It may have been his first time meeting people who knew him more for They Live and Hell Comes to Frogtown than his life with the WWF/E. 

Regardless, it seemed like a whole different world to him...and it was very cool watching him meet fans of his "other" line of work that were not old enough to have ever seem him wrestle at a live event.

And he's still out of gum.  People leave bottles of scotch and things for other people, why isn't there a pack of gum on this grave?

CSB...

We're checking in to Days Of The Dead horrorcon in Indianapolis in 2015, and one of the elevators is broken and there is this massive line, so we just chill for a few minutes after signing in... and I hear from behind me.. "Hey I found the stairs, it's just 5 floors.. to hell with waiting" .. I agree and grab my bags and turn around and there is Piper, like.. "Well, lets go!" .. So we carry all this shiat up 5 floors and Piper's just being kinda quiet looking at all the people in the hallways (It was packed, and with the snowstorm outside no one is leaving the hotel.. and there is nothing to do on check in night but fark around and drink) and he's like.. "So, they do this .. a lot" ?

We end up talking to him and he is absolutely thrilled and almost in disbelief that all these young people came out in this massive snow storm to come together and network and show independent films and meet some industry icons. (sharing an elevator later with Piper and Traci Lords and George Romero had me writing a movie in my head within 20 seconds of getting off that elevator)


So, the csb about that elevator ride?

If I ever have to look at the wrinkly ass, pathetically tragic live sucking whore again I will be charging whoever made me look that way with crimes against humanity.

George Romero was awesome though... He crashed one of the indy film meetings and just sat in... He was in the wrong room, but who is going to tell George that he is sitting in on the wrong group?

Also, Shane and Piper. (This is the problem with taking all the pictures... you forget to *be* in some of them...

/I think Traci wanted like $50 per head shot with autograph. I would only pay that skank $50 if the headshot was with an automatic weapon.
